In 2016, Mignogna received the Felice A. Rocca Jr. Award and in 2017 the Harrison-Winder Award, both presented by AI’s Philadelphia Metropolitan Chapter. The Rocca award was created to honor a distinguished chapter member with “a high sense of ethical behavior on a personal and professional level” and is presented to recipients “who exhibit these qualities.” The Harrison-Winder Memorial Award is presented in memory of two long-time appraisers “for all their efforts in advancing the appraisal profession.”
After serving two years as the Metro Philadelphia Chapter’s representative to Region VI, Mignogna was elected by the region to serve as its 2016 third director, moving on to the national Board of Directors from 2017 through 2020 as vice chair then chair of Region VI.
